I love visiting our local raspberry farm in Yungaburra, FNQ, and snacking on the plump, juicy, pesticide-free raspberries straight from the vines! Gabi and Michael do an amazing job of working with nature to sustainably grow raspberries, bananas and native fruits, which they then preserve by freeze-drying.
Why freeze-dry fruit?
Freeze-drying retains all the nutrition and fibre in the fruit, while intensifying the flavour and adding a satisfying crunch. The fruit can then be stored for long periods of time, eaten as a crisp and delicious snack, used to decorate food, ground into a vibrant and tangy powder, or even rehydrated in water, syrup or wine and added to drinks and desserts! The possibilities (and flavour combinations) are endless. Get creative and tag us in your photos so we can share your culinary creations to inspire others!
